...very easy to germinate and need up to 1 month to
i mixed rice hull and soil 50/50% an sat it on top of a concrete cement under full sunlight . i soaked the seeds
for 3 days and sowed them in the rice hull mixture. Covered the seeds with one inch soil and covered it with
clear plastic sheet. The seeds germinated after 2 weeks. In one month i planted them in individual plastic bags.

Unbelievably quick. 2-4weeks and they sprouted. 3 out of 10 sprouted.
Two leaves within 6-8weeks. I planted them in sphagum moss and mulch
and kept dark, moist and very warm. Avg temp 85 degrees.

Plants from this species ...
... are of excellent ornamental value
In amsterdam in The Netherlands they need average care and grow very slow.
Germination very easy and very quick. Got almost all of my 50 seeds to germinate in just a few weeks. Put them in a plastic bag with germinating soil at about 20 degreeds celsius. Seedling growth appears to be very slow however.
